Fill in Gaps in Pear Note

If you ever find yourself zoning out during a meeting or class, only later to realize that you forgot to take notes for 20 minutes, Pear Note makes it easy to fill in those gaps. To do so:

  1. Open your Pear Note document.
  2. Hit play.
  3. Click on the last text you did type to jump to that point in the recording.
  4. Click the lock to unlock the text of the note.
  5. Take notes on the part you missed.

Your new notes will be synced to the recording just as if you'd taken them live with the rest of your notes.

MacTech Conference 2011 Announces Sessions

Send Article to a Friend

The organizers of the upcoming MacTech Conference 2011, to be held 2 November 2011 through 4 November 2011 in Los Angeles, have made public the list of speakers and sessions. Aside from Guy Kawasaki’s keynote and a few other joint sessions, the sessions are divided into a Developer Track and an IT Track. Frankly, I’m sad I can’t make it this year, since a number of the sessions look fascinating. Plus, as a hotel-based conference, there will undoubtedly be tons of schmoozing, er... networking time with hundreds of interesting Mac geeks.

I’m also dying to know how Andy Ihnatko’s session for developers, “The Press, and How to Humor Them,” compares to my “Hacking the Press” talk from MacHack and C4 (the link goes to the articles I wrote about it, along with a video of my C4 talk).

If you’re interested in attending MacTech Conference 2011, early-bird pricing of $799 remains available through 8 August 2011.
